Dhoni - A True Match-Winner.

That is Geoffrey Boycott's assessment as we approach the end of the ODI series against England.

India, though, have emerged from the series with a few more positives, chief among them a superstar in the making called Mahendra Singh Dhoni. His elevation in the ODI batting order has brought out aspects to his character I hadn't thought he possessed. He has proved to be a true match-winner, who can bat anywhere in the order, and who thinks his way out of a situation. It helps, of course, that he has the Bollywood looks and the attitude to become a real pin-up boy for Indian cricket. Heck, he's got the looks, the talent and the brains, and provided he doesn't let any of it go to his head, he will be a true superstar.

Incidentally, Dhoni will be sitting out the last game in Indore.
